MP is given road safety petition
A petition calling for improved road
safety on the site where a 13-year-old
girl died last month has been handed to
the Northampton South MP.
Sophie Bywaters died on 13 October as
she crossed the A45 at Wootton.
Gemma Whitlock, who was seriously
injured at the same spot in 1987 when
she was eight, started the petition on
hearing of Sophie's death.
The petition, which has more than 2,000
signatures demanding a footbridge on
the road, was given to MP Brian Binley.
